Macquarie Group Plans to Open Jax Office in 2016
Australia-based Macquarie Group announced it plans to open an office in downtown Jacksonville in early 2016. This announcement was made two days after Jacksonville City Council approved an incentive package valued at $393,600, for a “confidential financial institution”, code named Project Post. The company could receive up to $1.39 million from the state in additional incentive dollars. Macquarie Group plans to bring 123 new, high paying jobs to the city by the end of 2017. David Bauerlein with The Florida Times Union covered the story, which appeared on the front page of the Friday, July 21st paper.
